Dr. Jane Anderson, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, New York University, focuses on ethnographic collections as spaces of reconnection for indigenous communities in this Penn Cultural Heritage Center lunchtime lecture. Ethnographic collections held within museums, archives, and libraries tell very particular histories about the colonial experience, including how Native culture was transformed into forms of exclusive property through practices of research, collecting, and documentation.
